Acid Can Cause Problems with Dental Veneers


Posted on 9/10/2018 by Dr. Hallas
Acid Can Cause Problems with Dental VeneersDental veneers are made of durable material, which does not break easily, crack, or stain. This makes them a great solution for fixing several dental problems. However, getting dental veneers does not mean that your teeth are no longer vulnerable.

Even with veneers on all of your teeth, they can still be vulnerable to a number of substances, for example, acids contained in the foods and drinks you consume. Below is a look at various ways how acids can cause problems with dental veneers.

Tooth Decay

Since dental veneers are attached only on the front and outer surface of a tooth, there is a portion that is left without protection. When this portion is exposed to acids, decay can set in, which will gradually erode the part of the tooth over time. If the problem is not treated, the tooth can be lost, thus rendering the veneer covering it unusable.

Easy Breakage of the Dental Veneers

In addition to causing tooth decay, acidic foods and drinks will erode part of the uncovered enamel. Over time, the erosion will cause the attachment of the veneers to the teeth to become loose. As a result, the veneers will be prone to easy breakage, not to mention the fact that you will experience problems when biting and chewing food.

An Unappealing Look

One of the reasons why dental veneers are so popular is that they help to improve the appearance of the teeth, giving you bright, natural looking teeth. However, acidic foods and drinks can cause several problems with the teeth and veneers, which can result in an unpleasing look. To start with, acids corrode the uncovered enamel of the teeth, which can lead to staining. But since the veneers do not stain, the stained section results in a two-tone tooth.

The effect of acids on the tooth can also cause the veneers to become loose where they are attached to the gums, and over time, shift their position. This can result in the appearance of gaps between the teeth.

Learn How to Maintain Your Dental Veneers

While dental veneers can help to fix your current teeth problems, they do not make you invulnerable to more in the future. Therefore, you should make a point of observing proper dental health practices, for example, avoiding extreme consumption of acidic foods and drinks.
